I thought it was written by Nabokov, and I thought it was called “The Spider” but I seem to be wrong on both counts, because I can’t seem to find it anywhere.
It was about a mentally ill man, who rented a room. He began to descend into schizophrenia, or at least into hallucinations. He built, or hallucinated building a web that filled his entire bedroom.
I also think that it was made into a movie in the not-too-distant past.
That’s about all my aging mind can muster. Help me Dopers!
